THE OPEN BEACHES ACT: From Watershed to Wipeout

Fall 2013 : Volume VII : Issue 1

*Author: Paola Eisner, Brown University

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, whose widespread destruction to coastal property left the National Federal Insurance Program $28 billion dollars in debt, coastal policy experts are reconsidering existing management paradigms. Current regulations increase federal liability in order to spur coastal development, even in vulnerable areas where rebuilding brings yet another bill to the American taxpayer and benefits last only until the next storm. Policymakers are considering changes that include rolling easements and shift liability from the taxpayer to the developer or property owner. Many of these measures, described as a new direction for coastal policy, have been in place in Texas since 1959 with mixed results. “The Open Beaches Act: From Watershed to Wipeout” tells the story of a coastal management paradigm in Texas that predates even the earliest federal coastal management regulations. The history of the drafting of this forward-thinking bill, challenges to this policy, and its current standing allow us to study critically how to draft new coastal policy that promotes ecologically sound management while maximizing success and preempting costly litigation.
